Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) this week reported results from a real-world evidence study of its CareAdvantage program, touting improved tray set up time and reduced surgical tray numbers with an estimated $262,000 saved annually.
The data was presented at the Academic Orthopaedic Consortium’s annual meeting yesterday, the company said.
“An important priority for UCSF as an academic institution is optimizing our OR processes and delivering better care to our patients. The study results provide insights about how we can achieve our goals by reducing the variation in clinical processes, lowering our inventory costs and physical footprint, improving our clinical staff’s productivity, reducing environmental impact, and helping enhance quality of care,” UCSF orthopedic surgery dept. chief administrative officer Richard Capra said in a prepared statement.
